Is there a practice, pattern, or habit that you engage in helps you live life to the fullest? In the Gospels we discover Jesus’ modelling practices that helped in the ups and downs of life when people were for him and against him. One of the practices that Jesus models is the practice of solitude. Jesus consistently withdrew to solitary places to be with the Father and root his identity in what the Father said, not what the crowd said. Everything Jesus did flowed out of his solitude with God. If solitude helped Jesus, I wonder if it might help us as well to begin practicing the way of solitude with God?
